I am happy to announce that after two rounds of clomid, I am 4 1/2 weeks pregnant. Keep up the hope ladies :)
Thanks, that's good to hear! I noticed you're in England as well...doing this all through the NHS I assume? It's interesting to read about all the tests and monitoring all the women go through on here, but my doctor hasn't done any of that with me. I think she's just happy I'm ovulating, but how can you be sure that everything is still working properly enough to get pregnant! She was really hoping my cycles would shorten while on clomid but my last one (first round of clomid) was 37 days! I ovulated cd18 I believe, but then with my LP being 19 days, it went a bit long!! But as you said focus on the fact that I am ovulating! So you are on cd12 of your 2nd round of clomid? Is that right? I'm cd7 on second round, woo hoo! It's all stressful but exciting at the same time!
I am on my 2nd cycle
150mg taking on days 4-8 and I am on CD7 :)
Fingers crossed December is our month!! BABY DUST TO ALL!!
Hi, I was also told to take clomid days 2-6, but wasnt told why those days, I did look into it myself and know people take it 2-6 or 3-7 or 5-9... i got the prescription on CD5 last month and just went for it and took it days 5-9 - I ovulated on CD15 and my day 21 progesterone was 57! I didnt fall pregnant tho and AF arrived after a 14 day LP which I'm thinking is good as LP was shorter without clomid. This month I have taken clomid 2-6 and wondered if I would ovulate earlier and I have just had a + opk on CD12 and having some pinching/cramps in my ovaries at this minute :o)
I wouldnt worry so much what your periods are like, as long as you are ovulating then thats a positive :)
Thanks for the info! My doctor is pretty vague, so I get a lot of my info from other people on here, their experiences and what their doctors tell them. Then I go back to my doctor and ask her about them, haha! So I kind of understood about the follicles, but would they monitor them if you're already ovulating? Since I am I haven't really worried about it, but maybe I'm just naive! Also, earlier you'd mentioned having a heavy period was good. Before clomid I had really bad and very heavy periods! But while on clomid they've been more "normal" which I was grateful for, until I read your comment then I was a bit worried...
Some Dr's do monitoring throughout your cycle to check follicles etc... but most don't usually only for iui's. They just give you clomid and hope you get preggo. As for the days My ob had told me that info. If your ob told you to do cd2-6 then I would follow that. There must be a reason he/she wanted you to start it on htose days. My dr prescribed cd5-9 but for my first 5 rounds I took cd 3-7 round 6-8 were taken cd 5-9.
Hello! I just started my 2nd round of clomid cd2-6 and I'm on cd6 right now. My first round was a bit rough. Hot flashes, insomnia, weird dreams! But this time I haven't had any of that, luckily! My day 21 test result was 41, which is good, but alas I'm on my 2nd cycle which speaks for itself!
sherrycoup: Where did you find your info about which cd to take clomid? My doctor never checked my follicles, just told me to take it those days!
Did anyone else have a long LP? Mine was 19 days of pure torture!! Ha ha! Good to hear there's so many more out there! I'm hoping for a Christmas BFP as well, then I won't have to buy my hubs a present! Ha ha!!
I'm having hot flashes as well
Hey! I am on my first round of clomid 50mg cd 3-7...currrently on cd9. So far I don't have any side effects except hot flashes. I'm glad to have the support of this group!!!!
Anyone having problems with vision?
Wow I did not know what, that's for the info :-)
sherrycoup-Interesting I never knew.
I read an article when taking clomid cd 1-5 you have higher changes of BFP (releasing more eggs and better shot at ovulation) Msg me to send you website article.
The difference is quality of follicles. I would say 99% do not ever do 2-6 unless directed specifically by your OB. cd 3-7 would mean more follicles but poor quality, cd 5-9 means less follicles but better quality
What is the difference which day you start Clomid 2-6, 3-7, or 5-9? If taking Clomid 5-9 will that change the time I will O? I am not going to BBT chart this month and just see what happens.
Hi Christine, how have you been??
Yesterday went for my 3rd u/s & my follice only grew to 14 in two days, I still have like 30 very little folices but they don't want to grow..... They said its more shape as a banana and now I go back for another u/s tomorrow Saturday to see if it's a follicle or a cyst.....
Lots of Baby Dust to All!!!!
This was my 3 round of clomid 1st only 100mg clomid, 2nd 150mg & shots & IUI & still got a BFN, & this months my RE put me at 200mg & shots again..... My obgyn doc was no good so I looked up a fertiletly doc..... He's the one that told me I had all this wrong with me cuz my obgyn doc for 18 years never did..... My RE checked for my cysts after my BFN & after my AF came..... There's a million questions to ask so start taking notes :-).....
I hope this info was helpful.....
If all goes well I should know by Dec 19-20 if I get my bfp!! My birthday is Dec 23. That would be the best bday and xmas gift I could ever get!!! I have decided to try using robitussint his month to see if that will help my cm. Still debating if im gonna take round 8 (I will have to decide by tomorow - cd5) What to do, what to do. Anywhoo - off to watch Sex and the city part 2!!!
Good luck!!!! I'm going to get a BFP for Christmas!!
I am starting my 3rd round of Clomid this Sunday Dr upped the dose to 100mg and days
5-9 Maybe I will get a really good Christmas Present a Bundle of joy cross your fingers.
Sounds like we both have the same problem. Naturally I dont ovulate & irregular periods. How many rounds have you been on clomid? I havent gotten checked for cyst which Im scared about, how often do you get treated/tested? What procedures to you have done on you? All my Dr does it prescribe me clomid, schedule me, tell me my progesterone results & re-prescribe me. After reading your brief bio Im considering changing DR's what should I look for/ask?
Hi ladies havent been on in a while. Some of you we experienced this journey last month LOL for the rest of you "NICE TO MEET YOU" This is my 2nd round 100mg cd 1-5.
Good luck to all-MILLIONS BABY DUST
im starting my 2nd round today :/
i hope this works!
Wow! It's so great to see so many of us doing a Nov. clomid cycle!! We're bound to have lots of BFP's with so many of us on clomid! LOL! SSBD to everyone! Keep us all posted!
